Submitting a joint proposal
For Round 3, schools and kura will submit their application through our new online Salesforce Creatives in Schools application portal. This replaces the previous online application form.
A Creatives in Schools funding application from a school and kura must be made through the Creatives in Schools application portal.
Step-by-step guide video on how to submit your joint proposal:
We have created a second video (viewable on the Tips for creating a good joint proposal page) outlining tips for creating an effective joint proposal.
School staff must use their own ESL user account with the Creatives School User role to be able to access the application.
|Creatives School User||The Lead teacher of the Creatives in Schools project will have this role.|
How do I access the Creatives in Schools funding application?
Each school and kura has a Delegated Authoriser. The lead teacher of the Creatives in Schools project should contact the school’s Delegated Authoriser to have the Creatives School User role assigned to your ESL user account, or to receive an email invitation for a new ESL user account. If you do not already have one, the accept an invite process is available here .
There are a few ways to find out your school’s Delegated Authoriser if you have an existing ESL account associated with your school:
- login to self-service, then click My Delegated Authoriser on the left-hand side
- check with a colleague, your principal, or manager.
If you do not have an ESL account associated with your school:
- check with a colleague
- contact the Education Service Desk .
Your school's ESL Authoriser/Delegated Authoriser will assign the Creatives in Schools Funding Application School role Creatives School User to you in the ESL online tool. If you receive an email invite you will need to accept it – the accept an invite process is available here .

We suggest that you don’t wait for the application closing date before you submit your joint proposal. If you submit your application well before the closing date, we will be able to review your project documents and request additional information if needed.
We have created example templates for timeline ( 44 KB) and budget ( 42 KB) to help you clearly understand the requirements. You must attach the completed budget template ( 41 KB) , timeline template ( 44 KB) , and artist CV/biography to your joint proposal. We also recommend that you review the checklist and tip sheet before completing your proposal.
There’s a limited number of applications that are selected per round, so using these tips and templates will help increase your chances of success.
COVID-19 contingency plan
In the event of further COVID Alert Level changes, we will offer flexibility around project timelines where possible.
However, as you are planning your project, you must include a contingency plan on how you will deliver your Creatives in Schools project in the event of a COVID-19 lockdown. We have also provided a sample contingency plan in the timeline sample template ( 44 KB) .
